Chi-Town Shakti

Yoga + Meditation

Work Study is for students who want to increase their role in our community, are serious about the pursuit of an urban Yoga practice, and LOVE doing yoga with us! What sets our work study program apart, is our deep commitment to Yoga lifestyle. Our connection to Shambhava Yoga affords the participants an opportunity to deeply experience Yoga surrounded by a supportive community who truly live their practice.

What you will receive:
  • Work study students have access to unlimited classes at the studio (Note: Work-study students are admitted on a first-come-first-served basis and after our teacher trainees and all paying students provided there is space. This is rarely a problem and you will quickly learn which classes do occasionally fill up.)
  • 50% off all workshops
  • 25% off retail
  • If you stay for 6 months or longer, you will also receive 50% off of your 200 hour Teacher Training.
